COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The 3-Grid IPA is our flagship ale. This India Pale Aleís citrus notes are created by Chinook, Cascade, Columbus and Amarillo hops from Yakima Valley, making it a true Northwest-style crowd pleaser. The alchemists at Schooner EXACT balance the hoppiness with a hint of malt, making this IPA one that pleases the staunchest of hopheads as well as the microbrew newbie.

Sample at the brewpub. Pours a clear golden-amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily to an outer ring. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, grapefruit and malt. Medium-bodied with a moderately bitter hops character and notes of citrus and sweet malt. The finish is hoppy with a citrus and pine aftertaste. Decent overall.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear golden-orange colored body with a finger-width, frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is citrusy florals and pines with a bit of a sweet resin and a touch of caramel malt backing. Flavor is similar. Somewhat juicy citrus pines and florals with some resins and a lightly sweetened caramel malt backing. Finishes dry and moderately bitter with a good amount of citruses. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium-light body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent enough IPA that is well hopped with a light caramel note. Nothing special, but enjoyable.

Bomber. Grapefruit and mild pine. Caramel in the background. Light bitterness throughout. Bland in the middle and missing a good IPA finish.

Beerman6686 (5090) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 5, 2012
Ths poured a bright orange color with a beige head. Aroma was of caramel, cascade, and light lemon peel. Flavor was mild citrusy hops, medium bitterness, followed by caramel sweetness. Not terrible, but I think may be a little old.

On draft. Pours golden amber with frothy white head. Big citrus aroma. Grapefruit taste hits you in the mouth on the first sip, is softened by sweet caramel malt. Sharp, bitter aftertaste. Hoppy and Iím happy. Tasty twist on the NW IPA.

carboloader (674) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 16, 2012
On tap at Vons in Seattle. Must have been an off-batch or dirty lines. One of the worst IPAs I drank that day. Tasted flat and lacking any kind of unique citrus or pine character. All three of us had full pints and it was rather appalling. The place was jam-packed and busy so you would think that the keg was turning over reasonably quickly. I would love to try this elsewhere given how many others here seem to think itís decent. It was practically a drain-pour for us on that day at that location.

From tap at Hales. Pours clear and golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma is fruity, citrusy and light mango. Bitter, crisp fruity and citrusy hoppy. Bitter and mango fruity lingering finish.
